The opening day of DGI 2013 conference will feature the most prominent names in the GEOINT world and a number of hot topics such topics as The London 2012 Olympic Games, Big Data Management and Mission Management.
Looking back at the London 2012 Olympic Games – lessons learnt and advances made. Most of the conference speakers from the UK will be proudly showing their strategies and discussing the role of GeoInt in the success of the London Olympic games. This is your chance to learn what worked, what didn’t and how you could apply the lessons in your organisation, country and government.
Human Geography – this conference stream will have a special focus on the latest advances in human geography and their use within geospatial and intelligence communities. Human geography has experienced an unprecedented growth spurt in both intelligence and GeoInt communities. Wars and battles are no longer won with weapons. It is the hearts and the minds of the local populations that need winning in order to win battles.
